Dennis - Prostate Bed and Lymph Nodes

Dennis - Prostate Bed and Lymph Nodes

Dennis had his prostate removed after he was diagnosed with cancer in 2009. But his PSA crept up again and again. That's when Dennis realized, “I will always have prostate cancer. Now, it is about quality and length of life.” In 2021, he decided to go with proton therapy for treatment.

David - Ocular Cancer

David - Ocular Cancer

When David began having problems seeing his computer screens at work, he decided it was time for glasses. At his eye exam, he decided to get a digital eye scan, which he understood to be a more precise image of the eye and surrounding tissue. Because the scan appeared to show a scratch, his optometrist recommended that he see a retinal specialist, who performed additional scans, injected dye and even did an ultrasound. When the doctor came in to review the results, the diagnosis was sobering: There was a mass on David’s eye.

Jim - Sarcoma

Jim - Sarcoma

When Jim Copen went to pick up his 6-year-old granddaughter, she pointed out something unusual about him that she hadn’t noticed before. “She told me, ‘Grandpa, your belly is sticking out’,” Jim recalls. “She had noticed my entire stomach was bulging and that’s when we decided to get it checked out.” It turned out to be a liposarcoma.

Maddy - Brain Cancer

Maddy - Brain Cancer

Two years ago, as she was walking into yoga class, Maddy momentarily found herself unable to speak. At first, she thought it was due to anxiety about school, but when it kept happening, and the right side of her body periodically started going numb, she sought out a doctor. She was eventually diagnosed with astrocytoma.

Harvey - Lymphoma

Harvey - Lymphoma

About two weeks before Harvey turned 73, he discovered a lump over his left collarbone. “It just showed up when I looked in the mirror,” he says. He went to get it checked out by his doctor, and the diagnosis was non-Hodgkin lymphoma. However, “I am grateful that my medical concerns have opened doors to create further relationships, both with other patients and the incredible staff. I felt very emotional the last days of proton therapy. I felt like I was leaving behind family."
